Red Dirt Road designs are lovingly created by women in their remote Cambodian village from hand loomed, richly textured Cambodian silk. Each item is precisely constructed by hand using a treadle sewing machine and a coal heated iron. Your purchase of these beautiful designs enables these mothers to feed and educate their children while living at home. Before Red Dirt Road, many worked in the oppressive garment factories in the city, rarely seeing their children. All profits of Red Dirt Road are returned to the women.
Red Dirt Road originally began its journey with a full heart, and the vision to help one woman learn to sew. That young woman was Hab Saly. She, in turn, helped to teach seven other women how to sew. Together in their village home, deep within the Cambodian jungle, an association came to life known today as Red Dirt Road. Hard working and inspired to enjoy a better way of life, a group of friends soon became a family of highly skilled seamstresses. They changed their village, changed their lives and may just help to change the world.
